When Tim Tebow makes his first start of the season this Sunday, he will have plenty of supporters in the stands, despite the fact that the game will be played outside the Mile High City.
The Miami Dolphins have planned a “Gator Day” celebration for Sunday’s game, during which they will honor the Florida Gators 2008 National Championship team. Of the four former Gators that will take the field on Sunday, three of them play for the Broncos in Tebow, Marcus Thomas and Derrick Harvey. The host Dolphins feature just one in center Mike Pouncey.
“Honestly, I haven’t really thought about it,” Tebow said. “It is extremely nice of them. [They are] great memories, but on that day I will be focused on being a Denver Bronco and trying to go out there and compete to the best of my ability.”
Expect to see plenty of blue and orange – the color scheme shared by both the Gators and Broncos – and No. 15 jerseys in the stands on Sunday.
